Paint Ideas for Outdoor Furniture
It’s that time of year again when people are beginning to clean their outdoor living spaces and get ready for the warm summer season ahead of us! If you have cleaned your outdoor furniture and decided that some pieces need to be repainted, or if you just know that it is time to do some outdoor furniture painting, then you need to think about the best type of paint to use for the project. Some people may believe that any type of paint will work; however, a specifically-produced outdoor paint product will provide the best protection, longevity, and appearance for your outdoor purpose.
Overall, most professionals recommend Rust-Oleum’s paint for outdoor furniture purposes. Rust-Oleum Painter’s Touch is a multi-purpose paint that can be used for wood, metal, plaster, wicker, masonry, and other outdoor surface areas. This paint is quick-drying, durable, and provides good full coverage. Although one coat of paint will look nice, most experts recommend two coats of paint to provide maximum coverage and longevity. This paint is resistant to fading due to sun or water exposure, as well as resistant to chipping, too.
Another paint type that you may want to consider is KILZ Exterior Siding, Fence, and Barn Paint. If you have outdoor furniture that is prone to algae or mold buildup, then KILZ Exterior is a good choice for you. Experts recommend using two coats of KILZ paint on outdoor furniture pieces. This coverage will be appealing and clean, and it will be resistant to fading, chipping, or scratching. This paint option provides full coverage that helps hide flaws in the surface and it is a durable coating.
Painting outdoor furniture can be an overwhelming task to some people, but it can be a very rewarding project, too. By choosing the right paint and attractive paint color for your outdoor furniture, you can create an outdoor living space that is inviting, cozy, and fun for everyone around your home.
